Good day all,
I'm brand new to the forums and I am looking for some ideas. I just acquired a 1986 650 4x4 tractor with a 60" mower. It seems to be in reasonable shape, starts and runs well, has about 1,000 hours.
My issue is that after 20 minutes of mowing, the mower stops. I found a fuse blown in the fuse block. This fuse seems to affect the dash lights and the mower clutch. With very little information to go on, I replaced the fuse with the same size fuse (20 amp) and went back out to mow. 20 minutes later, the fuse pops. I looked over things and I don't see any bare or potentially exposed wires. I have to say that I did not get all the way into the clutch area. So, after laying my hands on it and some tender caressing, and another 20 amp fuse, I went out to mow. Sure enough, 20 minutes later the fuse pops.
I'm not cutting real heavy grass. The field is a little rough, but I was able to keep up a reasonable speed.
Thanks in advance,
